2013 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Oct-14-2013 by Matt De Lima
Update (10-14): Fantasy owners, it's time to learn about Jarrett Boykin now that Randall Cobb reportedly suffered a fractured fibula. The injury is expected to keep the slot receiver out 6-8 weeks, meaning Cobb be out until Week 14. He left in the second quarter after Ravens safety Matt Elam tackled Cobb low with a helmet to the knee. The 6-foot-2 Boykin went for 41 yards with his only catch against the Ravens. Depending on the status of James Jones, Boykin could be the Packers No. 2 receiver and have immediate WR3 status for fantasy owners.
Profile: With an offense this potent, the player that the earns the No. 4 spot on the depth chart has a big opportunity. Jarrett Boykin is a second-year receiver out of Virginia Tech with excellent hands. Former Green Bay legend Antonio Freeman was also a Hokie, so perhaps Boykin can make a name for himself as well. The problem is a lack of experience. Boykin did not play much as a rookie. He caught five of his six targets for 27 yards. Given the injury history of Jordy Nelson, Boykin is only an injury away from a lot of playing time in an excellent offense. He will have to fend off challenges from many other young receivers that are behind him on the depth chart though.
